Explore the world of traditional Tibetan art and the sacred methods in creating a Tibetan Thangka.
Have you ever admired a Tibetan Thangka and wondered about it’s magic and mystery? Lama Gyurme Rabje will teach the Sacred Tibetan Art Retreat on the weekend of May 24-27, shedding light on this topic. A retreat for broadening one’s relationship with Tibetan Buddhist symbolism and practice, developing one’s skill in drawing and painting, and for those curious about the tradition of Tibetan Sacred Art.

Tibetan master artist Lama Gyurme, who painted the beautiful murals in Tara Mandala’s Trikaya Tara Temple, will teach the origin of Tibet’s Sacred Art and give lessons on how to draw and paint Tibetan Thangkas as a beginner. He will teach how to draw the Buddha and various Deities, how to properly use the paintbrush, and if time permits, he will explain how to make your own Thangka canvas. Lama Gyurme will also give an overview of consecration rituals for Thangkas.
All art supplies will be provided and are included in the retreat price. This retreat is open to all.
